"Mom"day Monday

Hello! It's "Mom"day Monday and that means that I will be sharing a handful of mom's gorgeous handmade cards with you today. My mom is very talented and I am so lucky that we get to share this hobby together ;D I frequently receive packages in the mail from her containing lots of stamps and fun embellishments. She is extremely generous. I can always be sure that she will include at least one, but sometimes two or even three of her wonderful handmade creations along with the other goodies! YAY!

Mom and I love birds, so today I pulled three cards featuring these little airborne beauties. I love the top one because it has a vintage look to it. She drew the birdcage by hand and cut it out. See, I told you she was crafty ;D The next one is so fun and the layout is fantastic. The third one has so many fabulous elements, I don't even know where to start. The bird is awesome, of course, but that Hero Arts flourish that brings the card together and connects all the details is pure genius and I don't think I've seen it used that way before. AND that bit of delicate lace and ribbon at the bottom is just the perfect finishing touch, don't you think?

Well, that's all for today. I am not sure if I will have a post tomorrow, but be sure to come back Wednesday for the La-La Land Weekly Wednesday Challenge. Have a great day ;D
